‘Timeless’ Has Been Saved From Cancellation – Gets A Season 2 Renewal Instead

Reports are coming in that NBC has reversed its decision to cancel Timeless, the Sony Pictures Television produced time travel drama. Apparently the network has renewed the show for a second season.


The show follows the adventures of History Professor Lucy Preston, scientist Rufus Carlin and Soldier Wyatt Logan as they attempt to stop the villain Garcia Flynn who has stolen an experimental time machine from changing the course of American history through time travel. Preston, Carlin and Logan each have a connection to his plan as well as the mysterious organization that funded the machine’s development.

Sony TV along with co-creators Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan fought hard to keep the show going after the initial cancellation pitching a more family friendly tone for season two. Sony Pictures Television firmly believes in the shows creativity and are confident that the show has the potential to be a long running family friendly series. Timeless has been a favourite with parents and children, and at this stage looks set to move from its 10:00pm slot to 08:00pm, though this is unconfirmed.

Not sure when season two will air, co-creator Eric Kripke initially noted that it would air in the summer of 2018, with 10 new episodes, that is not guaranteed so a spring 2018 could also be a possibility. “I think the mission was successful. We went back and I’m pretty sure we changed NBC’s minds so yeah, we got more episodes coming. See ya real soon,” co-star Matt Lanter said in a video posted on his Facebook page.

Eric Kripke posted the following on Twitter; ‘So huge thanks to @nbc for supporting us. And THANKS for the fan support. It’s a MAJOR reason we’re back. It worked, guys! #TimelessRenewed’. Shawn Ryan also posted the following on Twitter; ‘Being told by @NBC timeslot undecided. Will be spring or summer of 2018 though. #TimelessResuscitated’. The cast includes Abigail Spencer as Lucy Preston, Malcolm Barrett as scientist Rufus Carlin, Matt Lanter as soldier Wyatt Logan and Goran Visnjic as Garcia Flynn.

Others in the cast are Paterson Joseph and Sakina Jaffrey. Executive producers of timeless include John Davis and John Fox of the hit show The Blacklist.
